Hi to everyone. I am a psychology student and also had some mental health issues myself. But I am not suffering from Agoraphobia. I just wanted to ask the following question because I got into a discussion with a professor at my University about the subject. I am aware of the criteria of Agoraphobia but I was wondering if there are people who do suffer from Agoraphobia as a specif phobia. So the object of fear would be the wide space, open places itself and not the expected Panic Attac / embarrassment without the possibility to flee. So to say the opposite of Claustrophobia. The fear of being exposed, helpless because of the open Space itself. Anyone who could relate to that? I am happy about your answers! Thanks in advance.
